Costing 10 cents in honor of its 10th anniversary, Project Superpowers is being relaunched this Summer! Penned by writer Rob Williams (current writer of Suicide Squad) and artist Sergio Davila (well known for his art on Injustice) the series will kick off this August with a special issue #0 priced at 10 cents.
In a press release issued today, Dynamite gives us a first look at the new premise and more:
An all-new threat faces the Earth, while the team faces turmoil from within and must overcome all obstacles to prove their worth and value in a world that desperately needs its heroes. The Black Terror, The Death-Defying ‘Devil, Sampson, Masquerade, Green Lama, Scarab and more are all here as the adventure begins again.
“In our new #0 you’ll see we’re introducing the new world via The Devil (Death Defying) and Green Lama,” writer Rob Williams said. “We’ll flash back to introduce new readers to the team’s World War 2 origins and how they were brought to the present via imprisonment in Pandora’s box. And then it’s introducing a brand-new threat. One not so rooted in their history. The main players, which include The Black Terror, The Scarab, Masquerade, are going to have to form a new incarnation of the team. And The Spirit Of the American Flag is hovering, watching, judging… A new host is going to be taken.”
Williams got his start in 2002 as a publisher/creator with Com.X then worked with a variety of publisher including Dynamite, 2000A.D. and Marvel before landing with DC where he started his critically-acclaimed on-going run of Suicide Squad in October 2016 that continues on 38 issues later.
Davila began his professional career with Dynamite on the Lord of the Jungle series in 2012 and has provided work for Red Sonja, Vampirella and other of the publisher’s top series. He has recently started working with DC on Wonder Woman and Superman but jumped at the chance to draw Dynamite’s most powerful heroes.
“We’ve been planning the relaunch of Project Superpowers for the last year, and knew we wanted to create the most compelling comic possible! To do that, we were able to bring on board Rob Williams and Sergio Davilla, and it’s a great comic! To ensure the widest audience possible reads the series, we are offering the #0 issue at .10 cents for the 10th Anniversary of Project Superpowers!” States Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. “I couldn’t be prouder of the creative team and comic, and can’t wait for fans to check it out! I know that they will love it!”
“I Am beyond thrilled to be working with Rob on this ambitious relaunch of our flagship superhero series. Rob’s become a friend and a force to be reckoned with in comics for sure, and applying his vision and skill to Project Superpowers is going to make it THE superhero event of 2018.” States Dynamite Executive Editor Joseph Rybandt.
Project Superpowers #0 will be solicited in the May issue of Diamond Previews catalog.
